Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Obama’s 2011 State of the Union speech

The Biggest Loser was interrupted by Obama’s speech.  Savor the irony.  😆

Some takeaways:

He said “This is our generation’s Sputnik moment.”  Sweet Lord, I pray not.  Sputnik failed the first time, and there were subsequent failures.

His vow: “If a bill comes to my desk with earmarks inside, I will veto it.”  This promise is not to be confused with his 2009 statement that “Done right, earmarks have given legislators the opportunity to direct federal money to worthy projects that benefit people in their districts, and that’s why I’ve opposed their outright elimination.”  Every bill that has had earmarks over the last two years has been signed into law by him.

A rather shameless lie: “Thanks to the tax cuts we passed, Americans’ paychecks are a little bigger today.”  He fought extending the Bush tax rates tooth and nail, surrendering only when it became clear he couldn’t win.  And now he wants credit for caving in on tax rates that he said were harming our economy?

According to the AP‘s fact check, Chairman O’s plans to decrease the deficit by increasing spending (he and his party prefer to use the term “investments”) don’t really add up.  Go figure.

  1. Like always Obama talks a good game and gives a great show that makes everyone feel good about him, but just underneath the finely gilded words is still the rotten wood of socialist retoric.
